Risk Factors of Parental Alienation

During a separation or a divorce, there are a number of factors that can put you and your children at risk for parental alienation. Early recognition of these factors is important so you can intervene and protect your relationship with your children.

  • Visits are withheld.
  • Children are frequently not returned on time (later than a half-hour).
  • A parent threatens to abduct the children.
  • Suggestions of sexual, physical, and/or mental abuse.
  • Alcohol or drug abuse.
  • A parent having a severe mental disorder.
  • A parent interferes with a reasonable number of phone calls.
  • Children begin refusing to visit.

This list is not intended to be a list of symptoms, these are risk factors that you should be aware of that can lead to alienation.
